That's AWESOME! It's going to look even better with Taps!

The copper looks awesome. It gives me the idea of using copper or tin ceiling tile. My only concern would be attaching the escutcheon from the tap shank with the fancy pressed design of the metal.

I LOVE Brown's! I used to go to the Brewpub in Troy all the time when I was in college at Union!

Just finished mine. Snagged a Sanyo 9512 and the kegs from Craigslist.

I cut the door panel off to make room for at least 3 kegs. It'll hold 4 if I mount the bottle outside of the fridge.

Soon, I'll add a third faucet in between the first two., and then I'll clean up the gas & beer lines to make them less like Medusa's head.

Eventually, I'll upgrade to Perlick's, and have some fancy tap handles. =)

I wasn't gonna post pics until it warmed up a bit and I was able to paint it properly. But oh well.

It's a 26.4 cu ft Kenmore. According to the serial number it's from 1980 or so. It was a Craigslist find.

Micromatic Premium regulators. Perlick 425SS. Love controller.

I had to completely gut the lid and re-insulate it. It has 2" of insulated board in the lid and 1" of insulation around the collar.

My favorite part is the one-eyed Abe that I burned into the collar before I stained it. I took several layers of the aluminum duct tap and cut the stencil out. Then I took a pen butane lighter and ran it over the stencil. I think it turned out real well.

Things left to do: paint, clearcoat, fan (depending on how well it is insulated), skirt to match the collar, dolly with casters, and fill the four kegs I have.

I have been stalking this thread daily since i joined. When i got married and the Mrs. said i should get a kegerator, my jaw dropped. Since then, i've been buying it Johnny Cash style (one piece at a time) and have waited over a year to assemble everything. January 2011 is the time. While i have no pics yet and the frame isn't assembled, i'm sure there are a few fans of Gallifrey who will appreciate my efforts once completed.

Thanks to everyone who has inspired me. I could list many people, but i will just thank everyone including the ugly kegerator owners. Each of you has busted your ass to make it yours and i commend you.

Next pint is had in honor of you all.

(i think i'm intoxicated. that's the only excuse for lame kissass posts like this)
